And until it does reach the public for real, expect a flood of scams citing this as proof their quick test works. Just send a drop of blood and $10,000 and get your cancer test results in a couple days!
The sooner the real thing goes through trials the better. Assuming it does lead to a legitimate test, that is.

I wonder if the homeopaths are going to twist this into a cure? Dilute UV light in water, instant all cancer cure.
At least it would be a step up from the usual bottled water they sell. This stuff would atleast be UV sanitized.

And this is how bush got away with so much. They cultivated an image of him being a frat boy idiot so the general populace would shrug things off as "oh he's too stupid to know what he's doing".
Which is a horrible thing to accept from a president, but apparently it worked.

It would not surprise me if that image comparing faces bush made to faces monkeys make was created by his PR team.

Yeah, you're right, a child's death by starvation and abuse is such a downer and should be forgotten as quickly as possible. That money would do much more good for the world if used to create more cute cat videos and pictures for the internet.

Not like any good ever comes of reminding people child abuse happens and kills. And even if it did, there's no way an interesting statue could possibly generate attention and remind people of the incident for decades to come.

Being the effective owners of said parking spots, the city has the right to determine who can use the public spots, not some phone app. Just as they can mark whole stretches of street as no parking or parking with time limits or other rules.

If the app makers believe they have the legal right to continue operating they can sue to force the city to allow use of their app.

Well, Amazon is developing drones capable of delivering heavy "packages" with pinpoint precision. They just need to make sure their control commands to the drones have priority on wireless channels so they work uninterrupted.

How do they know you're not driving your family to the airport for a fee? Or yourself for that matter.
Obviously they can't take your word for it, you could be in collusion with yourself in a conspiracy to defraud the airport and cab drivers.

No, best thing to do is make it completely illegal for someone to drive to the airport or anywhere within a 4 hour walking distance without a commercial license.
